Dyndrite, providers of the GPU-accelerated computation engine used to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, report an updated release of Dyndrite LPBF Pro, the company’s 3D printing software for laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) machines, including Aconity3D, EOS, Nikon SLM Solutions, Renishaw and Xact Metal.

Dyndrite LPBF Pro is a GPU-powered software toolkit that provides metal AM manufacturers with capabilities, including the ability to print previously impossible parts, define accelerated build strategies, and automate their build preparation, the company reports. The software is designed to enhance the productivity, precision, traceability, and repeatability of AM materials development and serial production processes.

The software helps enhance development of new materials, alloys, and multi-materials parameter sets, has the ability to work with multiple layer heights, enables the printing of intricate geometry, including small features, thin walls, domes, and cantilevers, provides extensive surface roughness controls, and offers methods for developing support-free print strategies. Dyndrite LPBF Pro is used within the aerospace,  defense, rocketry, automotive, energy, and medical industries.

Enhanced Functionality

  • Support Geometry—More control over part and build plate interfaces for supports, including application programming interfaces for part avoidance and connection.
  • Toolpath—Advanced tools for heat exchangers/thin walls, beam stirring, and multi-optic strategies all have expanded apis, along with build time estimations.
  • Trajectory—New APIs with examples addressing multi-laser constraints.
  • Integrated learning—Applicable for all experience levels, Dyndrite LPBF Pro presents a novel integrated documentation and scripting interface that educates users as they interact with the product. Customers report quick adoption across varied user experience levels.

“Over the past six months, we've collaborated closely with the members of our Early Adopter Program to ensure our toolkit addresses their most significant technical challenges and process control needs,” says Steve Walton, head of Development for Dyndrite. “Their feedback has been invaluable, and is incorporated in this latest release. We are excited to see what our users will be able to accomplish with these new tools.”

Enhanced Renishaw Support

Renishaw QuantAM users can now leverage Dyndrite LPBF Pro’s 3D Volumetric Segmentation tools to analyze and assign multiple parameters to a part. Using this method Renishaw users were able to print coupons with overhangs down to 30° support-free.

“Dyndrite has shown an incredible level of commitment to our industry with the release of Dyndrite LPBF Pro product,” says Kevin Brigden application engineering manager, Renishaw. “The leveraging of Renishaw’s QuantAM API ensures that our current and future customers have the opportunity to easily explore the incredibly powerful tool sets offered by Dyndrite.”

Parts on Display at Rapid + TCT 2024

During the Rapid + TCT 2024 conference, a number of companies will showcase Dyndrite LPBF Pro printed parts. Each highlights the combined value of their material, or expertise with Dyndrite’s print performance and flexibility, these include:

  • Equisphere (booth 1361) - Showcasing customer aluminum parts printed both without, and with Dyndrite LPBF Pro demonstrating high-productivity and surface finish control.
  • Dyndrite (booth 2031):

AMS—will showcase parts printed using a jointly developed “Continuous Offset Contour” approach that overcomes the over-energized zones that legacy vector path and hatching strategies typically create, which often leads to peeling or build failures during the production of motorsport parts featuring thin wall ducts. 

Aconity3D—Is presenting Equispheres aluminum prints demonstrating the high-productivity and advanced surface quality capabilities of Equispheres, Dyndrite LPBF Pro, and Aconity3D

Additional qualification builds printed on Nikon SLM, Renishaw, & EOS machines.
